CODATA Task Groups 2023 – 2025

Task Groups are groups of scientists, researchers and data experts who work together on a specific problem or theme to advance the state of data management and to advance science and improve our world. Task Groups are proposed according to a procedure defined by the CODATA Constitution and they are approved and endorsed by the General Assembly.  They are an important means through which CODATA delivers on its mission and Strategic Initiatives, including the Decadal Programme: Making Data Work for Cross-Domain Grand Challenges.

The Task Groups’ roles and responsibilities are further outlined in the Task Groups Guidelines that clarify relevant sections of the CODATA Constitution.

The following Task Groups were approved or renewed at 33rd CODATA General Assembly, held 27-28 October 2023. Specific expectations of the Task Groups for this term were outlined in the 2023 Call for Task Groups.
